Improving the health of people in the UK with Vitamin D

Do doctors know anything about the Innate Immune System ?

Are there any doctors worldwide who understand that we have an Innate Immune System that can protect us against a virus ?

What advice can they give to people at risk how to improve their Innate Immune System ?

Current containment of virus infection is based on mechanical devices (goggles and masks) that shield the entrance doors of the virus (eyes, nose, mouth), and on tight social restrictions to limit the possibility of contact among people.

Have you heard any doctors telling us how to protect ourselves when the virus does penetrate our eyes, nose and mouth ?

Here is an interesting review that does:

The fight against COVID-19 – the role of drugs and food supplements

Here is an Immune Support Pack that provides advice via a book ( FluFighters ) and some supplements including high strength Vitamin C, Vitamin D and Zinc.

This is not going to stop you getting a virus infection, but it will boost your Innate Immune System so that the effect and symptoms are greatly reduced and last a much shorter time.

Have you heard any doctors telling us to change anything about our diet, because certain foods might help to protect us ?

  • Should we eat more eggs and less onions – or less eggs and more onions ?
  • They haven’t, because most UK doctors don’t understand “Diet & Lifestyle”
  • I met a doctor who proudly told me: “I know nothing about Nutrition”
  • How sad is that – and how dangerous ?

What about the many supplements that we read about in the press ?

  • Should I take Vitamin C and how much ?
  • Should I take Vitamin D and how much ?
  • Should I take Zinc and how much ?
  • Should I gargle with salt water ?
  • Should I inhale Iodine vapour ?
  • Doctors can’t tell you because they don’t know
  • And if they deviate from the NICE Guidance they might lose their license

NICE has just published a Quick Review of Vitamin D for COVID-19

They insisted on only looking at Randomised Control Trials ( RCTs ) specifically done on COVID-19 in the last 3-6 months, and not surprisingly only found 5.  Their conclusion was that “we cannot see any evidence for Vitamin D” which the press reported as “NICE said that Vitamin D does not work”

Work is in hand to review the NICE review and the conclusions will be published here as soon as possible !

All of this raises the bigger picture of why the medical profession has not given good advice about COVID-19

Let me make some quick comments and have a “rant” and ask a few questions here:

DHSC ( Department of Health & Social Care )

What were the failings of 2016 Exercise Cygnus that tested Pandemic response ?

If Vitamin D level of 100-150 nmol/L is required, they will have to defend their decisions to force the UK definition that Vitamin Deficiency is only 25 nmol/L

PHE ( Public Health England )

They run Porton Down and the Colindale infectious diseases unit, so they should know better

Did they ask the wrong questions of the wrong people ?

NHS England

Did they ask NICE the wrong questions ?


Why did they ignore submissions about Innate Immune Defence ?

Why did they ignore suggestions to let people aged under 60 to continue their normal life and only have lockdown for people over 60 years at risk of other infections ?

CMO ( Chief Medical Officer ) 

Why has he said nothing about Innate Immune Defence ?

CSA ( Chief Scientific Advisor )

Sir Patrick Vallance was previously head of research at GSK.  Does that mean that he only think about vaccines or does he know enough to give us advice about Diet and Lifestyle ?

Pharmaceutical Industry

Have they conspired to hide evidence, so that Evidence Based Medicine does not work properly ?

BMA ( British Medical Association )

Why do our Doctors not understand “Diet & Lifestyle” ?

I think that it goes back 100 years to the Flexner Report where Rockefeller money was used to change the curriculum for doctors’ training
